Non-Credit Course Through the NALS for Continuing Education & Formation

Join us for a four-part Zoom course, Why Isn’t My Church Growing? The course will begin March 4th! Register below!
Course Description: “Why Isn’t My Church Growing?” This question alone can elicit feelings of sadness and frustration. While many congregations struggle with stagnation and decline, are there other ways to reverse these trends? In this course, we will examine both external and internal reasons why churches are not growing. This class will also delve into biblical insights, which will provide direction for renewal in the local parish. There is hope.
